    Trouble connecting Pearl to PC

    Advertisement



    Until today I had no problem connecting my Pearl 8100 to my computer. Today I go to back it up and I get a message about device is missing required application. It worked before. I went to device properties and it says it can't connect either. My computer knows it's connected (shows my PIN), but I can't do anything. I installed Desktop Manager 4.3, but that didn't do anything.

    I went to device manager in Windows, and under ports, it says "RIM Virtual Serial Port v2 (COM3)" and has a yellow circle next to it.

    first thing to try:
    reboot the computer
    pull battery on Pearl

    hope that will help but if not let us know

    I just removed Pacman off my phone and now it works! I guess he was tired of eating circles and wanted to eat my functionality!

    I am having the same problem on my pearl. My computer wont recognize it when I plug it in I tried taking my battery out and rebooting my computer AND taking pacman off and nothing. I also tried unistalling the DM 4.2 and installed 4.3 and had the same prpblem. I have a T-Mobile Pearl 8100 running 4.2.1107 and my home computer is a new Dell running windows XP. Any suggestions?

    I'm having this same problem. Never had any troubles before. Tried everything so far. Don't want to do too much though, because I don't want to loose all of my contacts and such.
